David Dong has been a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) at Microsoft for 7 years. In April 2008, he was awarded as an ASP.NET MVP and his extraordinary research and contribution to Windows Phone have rewarded him as a Windows Phone Development MVP consecutively over the last three years.
David comments, "Being an MVP has affected and changed my life and career in many facets. The Award symbolizes that Microsoft recognizes the continuous efforts that I put into the relevant technologies. Not only is it an honor for Taiwan, but for Asia. In addition to the confidence the clients now have on my services and expertise, I can have more interactions with Microsoft and dialogue with other members of the MVP community, where technologies are shared and discussed in depth. Learning and teaching are mutually beneficiary, which is extremey valuable for me."
